SASKATOON — The City of Saskatoon is again inviting emerging and established artists in all disciplines (including writers, composers, visual artists, musicians, theatre artists, video, multidisciplinary, social practice, and performance artists) to apply for a residency in the historic Bunkhouse at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo.
Artists in Place: The Bunkhouse Project is a residency program to revitalize the historic Bunkhouse at the Saskatoon Zoo through the development and implementation of an artist studio program.
Project goals include:
• to provide opportunities for artistic expression in a civic facility
• to inspire artists through nature, animals, and people at the SFFPZ
• to connect the SFFPZ and the greater world
The Bunkhouse studios will be available to five artists or artist teams who wish to create work inspired by the Saskatoon Zoo. A minimum of two studio spaces will be dedicated to emerging artists.
The project will take place from June 6 to March 31, 2023. The Bunkhouse will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day with extended hours in the summer months.
The deadline for applications is on April 4, Monday at 4:30 p.m.
